The Chinese Temple was constructed in 1874. Like temples in other Chinese communities of the American West, this Joss House was built by subscription, with each member of the Chinese community contributing in some way to the temple's comstruction, decoration and furnishing. (This is a replica of the original Joss House)

The Chinese Joss House tells the story of the Chinese immigrants who lived and worked in Uinta County from the 1870s throught the 1930s.
